Description

Class Experience

After these 12 weeks, students should be able to... 

1. Explain what organ systems are. 
2. Explain the levels of organization that exist in the human body. 
3. Explain the function and name at least 2 organs involved in the nervous, muscular, skeletal, circulatory, respiratory, immune, digestive, endocrine and lymphatic system. 
4. Reflect and discuss how the organ systems are connected to one another.
5. Specifically describe how hormones affect the digestive system. 
I hold a Bachelor's Degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Biomedical Engineering. As I pursue my Master's, is my responsibility to know how organ systems of the body work together in detail. This has been emphasized by my library of coursework on the human body: from cell to system! In fact, multiple courses have had a specific focus in Advanced Systems and Physiology.

I have designed and executed middle school-level curricula that have included this material. I have also taught these topics in small classes of middle school students. 

I have also been an AP Biology tutor for 3 years, so it is my responsibility to be extremely proficient in these topics year-round. I myself completed and passed the AP Biology exam in 2017 with a score of 5.
Students will receive a workbook that holds all homework assignments. These assignments will be assigned after each class, and usually won't take longer than 20 minutes. We'll go over these homework answers at the beginning of each class session as a group. 

Though the assignments are meant to be important and purposeful, they should not add more stress to the class experience. Therefore, if the homework assignments are detrimental to your student's experience, feel free to skip them.
Students can simply enjoy the class by listening, but they can also have their printed workbooks in front of them to follow along. Note-taking is encouraged, but not required.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There are no grades or assessments in this course. This is only for enjoyment and enrichment.

A cumulative review game will take place on the last day of the course. This is meant to be fun and interactive without a score or grade attached!
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This course does NOT cover any aspects or mention ANYTHING having to do with the reproductive system.
During our endocrine system lesson, there is absolutely NO mention of hormones involved in reproduction or puberty.

This course explains organs of the human body in detail. Some of them include the stomach, mouth, pancreas... This course also describes some unsightly images like germs, mucus, saliva, and earwax.
This course also explains in detail how food is broken down and digested, which may disgust some learners. 

If your learner is uncomfortable discussing any organs of the body or anything described above, this class may not be for them.
